Implementing VR is a big step, but it doesn’t have to be hard. Bringing UbiSim to your school or hospital involves a dedicated Customer Success Manager who will be with you every step of the way to make the transition as smooth and successful as possible. 

UbiSim’s immersive VR platform can integrate with your program, department, or course goals, setting your students up for success in clinicals, on the Next Gen NCLEX, and in practice. 

UbiSim Implementation Process

Align & Build UbiSim Scenarios

Identify which UbiSim VR scenarios align with your program goals and which scenarios you need to build. 

UbiSim has over 50 pre-made scenarios built entirely for nursing—everything from mental health to pediatrics. These scenarios align with INACSL’s HSSOBP and prepare learners for the Next Gen NCLEX. The first step to a successful implementation is to look at your program, department, or course goals and curriculum and map each scenario to them.

“By taking the time to map your curriculum and match content, UbiSim will transform into an indispensable asset for your nursing program.” - Kimberly Workum RN, BScN, MEd, CHSE, CCNE, Director, Clinical Competence Assessment Centre and Digital Strategies at the University of Manitoba College of Nursing & UbiSim Partner.

If your program or hospital has additional needs beyond the pre-built scenarios, UbiSim has an Intuitive Editor that enables users to easily customize and create their own scenarios. There’s even a “By the Community” section where other institutions share their custom-built scenarios.

“Once you get the hang of it, it's really not difficult to create custom scenarios. I’ve authored over twenty. The teachers test them to make sure they’re correct.” -  Daphne Niewijk, Student, NHL Stenden

Setup Your VR Lab

UbiSim provides personalized guidance on everything, from headset procurement to thinking through your VR space and maintenance.

Your trusted Customer Success Manager will walk you through how to obtain Meta Quest headsets and help you plan your space where students or trainees will be in VR. 

To get started, all you really need is:

  • A clear 7x7 foot space for each learner in VR
  • A VR headset for each learner you would like to be concurrently in VR 
  • A computer (desktop or laptop) for someone (a peer or faculty) to trigger dialog
  • A stable WIFI connection

UbiSim can provide tips for storing, cleaning, and charging headsets.
